‘Franklin’ Composer Responds to Claim Beyonce Sampled Theme Song For ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’

Beyoncé’s latest track, “Texas Hold ‘Em,” has got fans feeling all sorts of nostalgic, especially those of us who remember the good old days when we were still figuring out how to tie our shoelaces without crying.

This surprise drop during the 2024 Super Bowl isn’t just taking over the charts; it’s also taken over TikTok faster than you can say “cheeseburger.” People are listening to it and going, “Wait a minute, this sounds like something straight out of Franklin, the turtle’s playbook!”

Yep, fans are convinced that Beyoncé might have taken a sneaky peek at Franklin’s theme song while she was cooking up this country anthem. And who can blame her? Franklin was a trendsetter in his own right.

But before we start pointing fingers and accusing Beyoncé of musical mischief, let’s hear what the original maestro, Bruce Cockburn, has to say. He didn’t miss a beat when asked about the similarities.

In his best musical maestro voice, Cockburn chimed in, saying, “Sure, there’s a bit of a rhythmic twang that rings a bell from my Franklin days, but hey, that’s where the similarities throw their last party. ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ is all Beyoncé’s jam, and I’m just here for the ride, y’all.”

He even had the kindness to throw in some compliments, adding, “I mean, Beyoncé’s track is catchy as all get out. I just wish I could take credit for it, but alas, I was probably just humming to myself while trying to remember where I put my car keys when she was crafting this masterpiece.”

Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” might have a little Franklin flair, but let’s give credit where it’s due. Beyoncé’s got her own groove, and she’s rocking it all the way to the top of the charts. As for Bruce Cockburn, well, he’s probably still searching for those elusive car keys.
